Kalanchoe is a genus of about 125 species of tropical, succulent flowering plants in the family Crassulaceae, mainly native to Madagascar and tropical Africa.

  • Kalanchoe was one of the first plants to be sent into space, sent on a resupply to the Soviet Salyut 1 space station in 1971.
  • A cousin to the Jade plant, flowering Kalanchoe are pretty low-maintenance plants, thriving in the low humidity of winter households.
SUNLIGHT
  • Kalanchoes need lots of light, preferably a south-facing window in winter and bright indirect light (or east/west window) in summer.
  • If your Kalanchoe plant is looking leggy and thin, it probably isn’t getting enough light.
WATER
  • Over-watering is the main killer of kalanchoes! Allow your kalanchoe to get dry between waterings.
  • Then water thoroughly until it runs out the bottom, and immediately empty the drainage tray.
  • Never leave the plant sitting in water.
  • After giving the plant a thorough watering remove excess water from the tray under the container to prevent causing root rot.
SOIL
  • Kalanchoe plants do best in a well-draining potting mix designed for cacti and succulents or stir in plenty of perlite or sand to improve drainage.
FERTILIZER
  • While your kalanchoe is blooming, feed it every few weeks with a balanced organic fertilizer.
